Displaying the UCS Code Point for characters which lack font support is
the norm in GTK.  This is done by drawing a box around four or six digit
glyphs which are rendered in a smaller point size.  I'd expect that this
is easier to read when using a proportional face.

Apple went in a slightly different direction and commissioned a fallback
font from Michael Everson which has one glyph per Unicode script and uses
that for each character associated with said script.

Emacs could easily do either (w/o the need for a font in the latter case).
